Early Christian Quotes on Suffering

Early Christian Quotes on Suffering

Barnabas’ Epistle 

(1st Century)

Chapter 8:


Jesus said, “Those who want to see Me and take part in My kingdom must obtain Me through tribulation and suffering.”




(1st Century)



Accept whatever happens to you as good, realizing that nothing occurs apart from God.



Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs

(1st or 2nd Century)

Testament 11, Paragraph 2:


He will in no way forsake those who fear Him, neither in darkness, nor in bonds, nor in tribulations, nor in necessities. For God is not ashamed like a man, nor afraid like a son of man, nor weak like one born on the earth, and He can’t be thrust aside, but He is always at hand, and He comforts us in various ways, only departing from us for a little while to test the purpose of our soul.
